Expanding on their bait finesse lineup, the KastKing Kestrel Elite Bait Finesse Casting Reel is the perfect solution to the challenge of flinging light lures with a casting setup. Coming in at an unbelievably light 4.4-ounces, it’s the lightest reel in their arsenal thanks to the full magnesium frame with carbon side covers. In addition to shedding weight, those materials also maximize strength and durability enabling anglers to count on the Elite Bait Finesse Casting Reel for season after season. The internals are also strengthened with a hard-anodized, 7075 aluminum main gear and shaft that are linked with a 100% brass pinion gear.
The KastKing Kestrel Elite Bait Finesse Casting Reel complements its impressively low weight and high power with smooth operation. The Elite Bait Finesse Casting Reel comes out of the box with twelve double-shielded ball bearings for a buttery-smooth feel every cast. It also comes equipped with a shallow aluminum spool and magnetic braking system that are optimized for pairing with ultra-light line and lures. A carbon disc drag provides smooth stopping power to turn a surging bass and its 80mm aluminum handle helps anglers crank them back to the boat. A featherweight reel that packs a big punch, the KastKing Kestrel Elite Bait Finesse Casting Reel puts finesse power in the palm of your hand.
PERFECT REEL FOR FINESSE FISHING– The Kestrel Elite BFS (Bait Finesse System) baitcasting reel is the lightest on the market weighing only 4.4 ounces! This reel allows anglers to effortlessly cast lightweight baits farther with greater accuracy while nearly eliminating backlashes. Plus, the minimal weight and comfortable, compact size make the Kestrel Elite a breeze to fish with all day long!
ADVANCED BRAKING TECHNOLOGY– The FAF (Flyout Arc Finesse) Braking system was designed specifically for finesse fishing. Two half-ring magnetic brakes automatically adjust to slow down the spool when braking is needed to prevent backlashes. As the speed of the spool decreases, the magnetic field inside the spool diminishes and the magnets retract to maximize casting distance. There is also an external fingertip brake adjustment dial for fine tuning spool speeds for smaller baits.
INNOVATIVE SPOOL – The ultra-lightweight BFS shallow feather spool weighs only 5.6 grams! The smaller spool excels at handling the smaller diameter lines best suited for finesse fishing. The shallow spool requires less effort to turn and get up to speed, therefore enabling anglers to effectively cast lures down to 1/16 oz.
STRENGTH WITHOUT THE WEIGHT – The compact Palm Perfect design (36.5mm height) and magnesium frame reduces the total reel weight to only 4.4 oz. Although the reel is as light as a feather, it doesn’t skimp on power. The main gear and shaft are constructed of hard anodized aluminum and linked to a 100% brass pinion gear. A carbon handle and side plates also keep the weight low while maintaining strength.
ADVANCED LINE GUIDE – The patented LFTV (Low Friction Tapered Vortex) Line Guide decreases the angle at which the line enters the guide, limiting friction during casts. Straighter line and reduced friction results in fewer backlashes and greater distance on casts, both of which are qualities highly desirable among serious finesse anglers.
